Excerpt: This is a great camcorder. The quality is very good. It's lightweight and user friendly. I have two other JVC camcorders and they are all very easy to operate. I only with this one had Live Streaming connection. Otherwise it's great.

Summary: Update: I have decided to replace it with a different brand, mainly due to Annoying motor noise and its big size. External mic solves the noise problem though. I purchased it from another retailer few months ago, so far I am very happy with it. Very good picture quality.
Excerpt: This is a very good camera for run and gun journalism, it has an amazing zoom and all the necessary features to work well and deliver professional work.
